Why, because you started going to shows?

guess i tripped your trigger eh partner?

You know I never saw them cliff. The concert experience is totally separate from the listening experience. Never saw them so this is how I judge them, by the music, not by any of the stuff that all you folks went through, good or bad.

Do you seriously feel that the dead only had a few good years?

I just don't get it, if anything I would think brents crazy key sound in 79-81 would drive you crazy.

My life wouldn't be as good if I hadn't heard that dew from 94, and it wouldnt be as good if I didnt hear it a bunch more. My argument is that there are goodies in every year. In general the dead seemed to stop the consistency of putting out epic shows after 74. Before this it was rare to have a month without a jaw dropper in the mix. Post 74 they became fewer and more far between. 77 was the exception. The rest are typically riddled with average performances with a gem or two. Then you might get something really great like the Alpine 89 run, or in fact that whole month of july. But again that was a rarity. I wont argue that 68-74 are the most consistently amazing years. But theres plenty of dead out there I love from other years, and I dont care about shows, i care about versions of songs.

the kid and the cliff, perma-head-butting.

Although you are now my enemy after what you've said about Clapton, I have pretty much the same opinion about the Dead's greatness through their career. There is way too much good music from the 80's and even 90's to dismiss those years. Sure they weren't as consistent but there were still so many magical shows that I would never only listen to 60's & 70's Dead. Although maybe 85% of my collection is from '66 - '74, I often seek something different and many of the later shows are perfect for that. I even love some of '95. Some of the most beautiful Jerry ballads were from the mid 90's.
